Like death & taxes, you can count on the American Institute of Architects (AIA) to regularly update their standard form construction contracts. Most such forms are updated every 10 years, and 2017 was no exception.
In the 2017 version, the changes are “evolutionary, not revolutionary”, according to AIA Managing Director and Counsel, Kenneth W. Cobleigh. Ken and I both recently spoke at the North Carolina Bar Association’s Construction Law Forum on various AIA changes.
Over the course of the next two weeks, I’ll be presenting a 10 Part Series on the Top 10 Changes that you need to know about the AIA A201 General Conditions.
Stay tuned for Part 1, on Differing Site Conditions, which will be posted tomorrow morning.
